“Perfect location, simple room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2010

Perfect location close to Dam, Red Light District and train station. Standard breakfast with complement of egg & bacon and fruit . Polite cleaning and dining staff. Small and dark room (105), but clean. The hotel was fully booked at our stay, but if not you should try to get other then 105. So as always with a fixed budget, you'll have to choose between location and standard.

Recently visited Amsterdam for the first time, and decided to use this hotel after reading the reviews on this website. The hotel is situated in an ideal central location in Amsterdam, yet there is not a problem getting to sleep at night as the street isn't too noisy, and the bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever used in any hotel. The bedroom and bathroom aren't huge but are perfectly adequate for a 3 star hotel and are spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast is good value, offering a wide range of options, from scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, to ham, cheese, fresh fruit, and a variety of breads. Overall, this hotel is very good value, and I would certainly use it if visiting Amsterdam again.

Simply a European style hotel - rooms are small with a bed, 2 bedside tables, a bureau, TV with Dutch, English & US (BBC & CNN), French stations. Clean room and bathroom; OK shower with solid water pressure. Location - 2 blocks from the Central train station and along a major tram route to museums and key tourist points. Walkable to plenty of good restaurants and the Jordan neighborhood (9 Streets too). Breakfast was ample - cold and hot buffet.

This hotel is in a great location. Easy to find, close to Central Station, Canal trips, Red light district, Dam Square and quieter canal-side walks. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby too. Although the hotel was located on a busy road it was still quiet at night so we had no problems sleeping. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was plentiful and consisted of a wide variety of hot and cold food. We would stay there again.

Traveled with friends for a total of three rooms, two doubles and a triple. All of us asked for different rooms after seeing the first assigned. The three women in the triple changed 3 times, and eventually paid E20 extra a night for a quad room because the others were just doubles with a cot jammed in. My husband and I asked for a renovated room and stayed in #98, just off lobby, clean and new. Receptionist warned us the room might be noisy because it faced the street, but there were two sets of windows and it was February, so street noise was not an issue, and we were comfortable for our 3 night stay. Security was good, lobby door locked at night, and guests were buzzed in by front desk staff, who were helpful with recommendations and directions. This hotel was centrally located close to central station and Dam Square, but I'm not so sure I would stay here again after seeing my friend's rooms and of course, there are many hotels in the area to choose from. We did not hear about any thefts from rooms like other posters, also found the breakfast buffet fine and included in price. There is a fresh water and ice dispenser off the lobby which was handy to refill empty expensive water bottles, and to chill drinks as there is no mini fridge in the rooms.

We spent three nights here last week after a recommendation from the Amsterdam tourist board, Easy to find from the central train station, and well located for everything, the hotel itself is an old-fashioned disappointment. The lobby is bland, and the corridors are extremely out-dated. The rooms are TINY and very expensive for what you get.
Our first room was on the 5th floor (509), but we asked to be moved because: the bathroom had hairs and dust all over it, the 'view' was of the (noisy) air-con units, half of the ceiling was covered in creeping damp, the air-con in our room was leaking on the carpet, it was so hot we had to keep the window open (despite freezing temperatures outside), and the 'double bed' was two singles pushed together... oh and the TV remote didn't work.
Our second room (216) was cleaner and less damp, and had a view of the kitchen. It was less hot but more smelly. TV remote still didn't work! Had a double bed though.
We slept well and there were no noises from other guests. Breakfast was average - lots of choice but not much quality, and not very healthy.
Never saw the same staff on reception twice in three days, so felt very anonymous.
Extremely expensive for what we got. No way is this a three-star hotel.
